Hotel32 at Monte Carlo Las Vegas Set to Open August 10

July 9th, 2009 · 8 Comments

Today MGM Mirage announced that Hotel32, the Luxury hotel-within-a-hotel at Monte Carlo Las Vegas, is going to be opening on August 10th.

Here is the full press release:

You don’t have to be a celebrity to be treated like one at the soon-to-open HOTEL32. Located on Monte Carlo’s top floor, the exclusive boutique hotel, opening August 10, will offer the escape savvy travelers search for but seldom find; a celebrity VIP experience, available to all.

Right from the start you’ll know you have found something special as you are whisked away from the airport in a limo. When you arrive through the grand porte cochere at Monte Carlo, a Suite Assistant will be waiting to personally escort you to HOTEL32 via a private, express elevator, accessible by key card only. No check-in desk here; you proceed directly to your retreat and check in privately within the comfort of your room, leaving those registration lines behind. The Suite Assistant will provide a tour of your room’s features, amenities and services, ensuring you won’t miss out on even a moment of indulgence, from the 12 pillow offerings to the popular Nintendo Wii.

A collection of five room types, ranging from studios to 2-bedroom penthouses, will allow choices to fit every occasion and budget. Whether you want a romantic getaway or a fun-filled girls’ or guys’ weekend, the suites have been carefully designed to provide entertainment spaces suitable for everything from intimate gatherings to social events.

Each room’s sleek, uncluttered architecture will be paired with contemporary furnishings and luxurious amenities. The rich colors of chocolate and cream will be accented with citrine, turquoise, amethyst, ruby and orange, to set a tone of warmth and sophistication. Comfy, oversized custom furnishings along with a variety of hand-selected stone surfaces, including marble, onyx and granite, will create a place where you can hang out and feel like the ultimate VIP.

The comfort will continue within the spacious bathrooms, rich in detail and design. Providing a serene, spa-like sanctuary, each suite will feature soothing hydrotherapy soaking tubs. A shower with modish overhead panels which produce a gentle rainfall throughout the enclosure — and chromatherapy, the use of colored lights for added relaxation, will be another highlight in many of the suites.

If you like gadgets, unexpected high-tech amenities won’t disappoint. Available in several suite types, a Crestron remote system will make for an easy, one-stop control of the room’s drapes, lights and electronics; a BluRay player and a TV integrated into the bathroom mirror also will increase the “fun” factor. HDTV flat-screen plasma television, use of an iPod touch with mobile concierge application, and iHome clock radio with an iPod docking station will be standard in all HOTEL32 accommodations.

For business travelers and people who want to stay connected, laptop computers will be available upon request, and a tech-savvy workstation will feature complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access and dual phone lines. Other complimentary amenities will include fax services, local and toll-free calls as well as daily fitness center passes, newspaper and water. All are provided to help ease the strain of having to work while in such a glamorous setting.

What would a celebrity-like experience be without someone at your beck and call? All HOTEL32 guests will have exclusive access to a dedicated Suite Assistant, who will provide butler and concierge services throughout the stay. From the curbside greeting and a custom itinerary to fit individual interests to bath services and complimentary clothes pressing, Suite Assistants will make it hard to go back to “everyday” life. At HOTEL32, where everyone is a VIP, touches such as a welcome amenity, a signature turndown gift and a pre-stocked refrigerator based on the guest’s preferences will make every guest feel special.

Pairing stunning views of the Las Vegas skyline with a delectable assortment of refreshments and evening cocktails, lounge32 will enhance the pampering a step further. Located on the 32nd floor and available to all HOTEL32 guests, lounge32 will be a great spot for grabbing a cup of coffee before the spa or sipping a martini before an evening out on the town.

HOTEL32 — soon to be the new place where everyone can feel rich and famous in Las Vegas. Be one of the first to brag about a stay. To make reservations for an August 10 stay and beyond, call Monte Carlo, a wholly owned subsidiary of MGM MIRAGE (NYSE: MGM: 5.82, 0.319, 5.8%), at (877) 576-3232 or visit Rates begin at $250 per night, excluding tax and fees.

Hotel32 at Monte Carlo Las Vegas

May 8th, 2009 · 6 Comments

It looks like Monte Carlo is launching something new soon. It’s called Hotel32. Not much has been said about it yet, but here is our best guess at what it is.

It seems like it will be a boutique hotel on the top floor of the Monte Carlo. Monte Carlo has 32 floors, hence the name Hotel32. MGM Grand has a similar “hotel within a hotel” concept called SkyLoft. After last year’s fire at Monte Carlo, they probably completely redid some of the rooms, turning them into luxury suites.

Here are some pictures of the new rooms:

They are obviously going for a more high-end clientele than the usual Monte Carlo guest. We will try to get more details as they become available.
